Acclaimed mixologist Antonio Lai joins forces with chef May Chow of Little Bao for a new Draft Land Pop-up in Causeway Bay.
If you’ve never popped into Wyndham Street’s Draft Land, you’re missing out on some of the city’s best – and quickest – cocktails. The venue, for the uninitiated, is helmed by Antonio Lai, and serves an ever-changing array of innovative libations by tap, sans garnish, meaning a menu that’s always changing, and cocktails that are served quicker than the time it took you to read this sentence.
Now Draft Land teams up with hole-in-the-wall eatery Little Bao to create Little Draft Land, a pop-up concept in Causeway Bay’s Fashion Walk. Part of Little Bao’s #TravelwithLittleBao series, the three-month pop-up will present a menu of Korean-inspired cocktails – on tap – created by Lai and Draft Land Hong Kong manager Alex Ko, which can be paired with Taiwanese and Korean dishes by Chow.
A total of eight cocktails are available on rotation, including the refreshing Goryeo Highball featuring whiskey, maesil-ju, ginger, and soda; and the Baek-Hwa Collins with rum, pear, rice liquor, and elderflower. Draft Land followers will also find all-time favourites such as the Guk Bou, a twist on the local classic chrysanthemum tea; the thirst-quenching Oolong Tea Collins; and the high-abv Whiskey Cocktail.
Pair your drinks with classic takes on Taiwanese and Korean staples like the Lu Rou Scotch Egg with Japanese molten taiyouran egg, five-spiced shiitake pork sausage and truffle coleslaw, or the LB Fried Chicken Lettuce Wrap.
Sounds like a pretty awesome Friday evening.
